Free Trade Agreements (Australia – Indonesia)
Australia like many countries has established a number of free trade agreements and closer economic policies with key partner countries over the years. These have set the guidelines and framework to allow trade to flow quickly and easily. The fundamental agreements are put in place and then legislation and regulation are added to each country in accordance with the agreements. The barriers and obstacles are removed and trade starts to flow. Australia has ten Free Trade Agreements (FTA’s) in force and more to join shortly. If you want to know more about these DFAT has a web site summarising the agreements and their content here.
